The meeting focused on where drinking water comes from and how individuals and water system workers can protect it. Almost all of the DeSoto Parish water systems were represented at the meeting.

In Louisiana, one-third of drinking water comes from surface water in lakes, rivers and bayous while two-thirds of drinking water comes from groundwater.

Stalled Train Interrupts En Route Ambulance

An inconvenience for some could be life or death for another. Once again the train that runs through Mansfield has stalled on the train tracks leaving people stuck on either side, including ambulances and other emergency vehicles en route to a call. First Responders are forced to work around this problem by dispatching other stations.

According to Brent Crawford, one of the main reasons they built the station on Hwy. 509 was so that they would not get stuck on one side of the train and not be able to reach people on the other.

Video Leaks Online Revealing Brutal NDHS Bathroom Fight

A fight between two girls in a bathroom at North DeSoto High School during lunch last week ended up on social media after a student who filmed the incident on her phone published it.

About a month prior, the victim in Monday’s fight approached Monday’s aggressor and attempted to instigate a fight. The other girl walked away and Monday’s victim was placed into In-School- Suspension. On Nov. 6, the roles reversed.

According to Superintendent Dr. Cade Brumley, “Monday’s aggressor is now facing criminal charges as well as expulsion from school. Further, the student who videoed this and posted it to social media will face short-term suspension at our alternative site. Monday’s victim was taken to receive a medical exam but was not admitted into the hospital. She will not face any school consequences this time.”
